With the recent announcement of a new album and tour, Trust Fund have released a new video for their single ‘Football’.
“I feel so ambiguous about football and especially the kind of football that you can watch on TV, but I basically can’t deny how important it is to a lot of the relationships I have with people”. And in that conversation, Ellis Jones, aka Trust Fund, perhaps sums up why so many people cannot shake their undying love for the nation’s sport. Or, perhaps more emphatically, as Ellis sings in the new Trust Fund single and video: “when you stop feeling weird in 10, or 12, or 15 years, what will we even have to talk about…? FOOTBALL!”
‘Football’, appearing here as a video clip by Bristol savant James Hankins, is the latest single to be taken from Trust Fund’s forthcoming album’ Seems Unfair’, out October 30th via Turnstile.
An outfit borne of community, Trust Fund are a changing group of musicians led chiefly by Ellis Jones. Having previously played alongside the likes of Los Campesinos! and Joanna Gruesome, Trust Fund will tour with Speedy Ortiz in October, before a headline show at London’s The Lexington on November 4th. Tickets for all shows are available now.
‘Seems Unfair’ is available to pre-order now from Trust Fund’s bandcamp page (LP and t-shirt) or iTunes.
